Our research increases knowledge and understanding of the world we live in and changes the way things work. We analyse complex human situations to find solutions to problems. We evaluate current systems and engage our expertise and the latest methods to improve them. We bring in knowledge from all around the globe to improve life here in the UK, often for the most vulnerable members of society.
If you come to York you will join a world class research community with the highest ranking in the country for getting our research out to the people who need it and improving our society.
